The "adventure rock" outfit's frontwoman demos both her classical-piano-inspired fretboard approach and her favorite modulation pedals.

Yvette Young is the only guitarist in her three-piece band, so she has a lot of sonic space to fly and her board is the launch pad. It currently holds a pair of EarthQuaker pedals—Warden Compressor and Avalanche Run—a duo of Walrus Audio stomps—a Fathom Reverb and Julia Chorus/Vibrato—a trio of MXR boxes—Ten-Band EQ, Carbon Copy Deluxe, and a Bass Octave Deluxe. Other noisemakers include a newly acquired Caroline Guitar Company Somersault, Electronic Audio Experiments Longsword, Meris Mercury7, TC Electronic Ditto, and a Ground Control Amaterasu V2. And a TC Electronic PolyTune3 keeps everything in check.
